There's so much to see and do at Griffith Park. You can go here to catch a show at the Greek Theater. You also go here to visit the Observatory and check out amazing views of Los Angeles and the Hollywood sign. You can go...More

Loved our drive through the park, great scenery (several movies have shot scenes there). Our tour only drove up to Griffith Observatory and back down -- would love to have stayed longer and learned more about the ecology.

This is a great place for a picnic and hiking. Let the kids run. It is in the canyon so the scenery is very close in and natural as opposed to the Observatory above which carries wide expansive views of the city. Easy access and...More

I have been running up the hill to the Observatory two times, for me was a tough one, from LA city up to the Observatory is over 200 meters... not bad. Then once you arrive at the top you feel you have reached a good...More

Like New York's Central Park, Griffith Park isn't a place where you can breeze through the whole place in an hour. It's an urban oasis with flora, fauna, assorted hikes and strolls, a great zoo, children's activities galore and plenty of space to plop down...More

We drove down from the Observatory through this park, and we ate our packed lunch there. It didn't look anything much to see or do that we're aware of. There only a couple of tables. Parking is free.

Great views and don't forget the lighting show inside the main building. Can get chilly and a scarf always needed for the ladies.

Every time I visit LA I come to Griffith park and walk right to the top to take in the incredible views all around. I love to watch the sunrise and see the day start far below. This is my favorite part of the world....More

This is my first time visiting and it certainly was an amazing journey, with magnificent vistas of the sunset atop the hills on the trail. The trek up to the sign itself was packed with different types of terrain and it definitely took some time...More

A must for one-time, and some time, visitors to Los Angeles. A very clear 300 degree view of the whole of LA County - smog permitting - all the way to the Pacific. Great opportunity for photos and the perfect view of, well, everything.

No camping in the park. There are homeless that hide in the park and camp there but they are breaking the law and are regularly rousted and ejected when they are caught. Since they lack the appropriate facilities for... More
